Back again from Seattle

I’m back from yet another Seattle trip. This time I had quite a few agendas to fulfill, outside of serving Max and spending time with him. I blocked off a good chunk of time to work on my SEAF installation with my fellow artist collaborator, I attended a small bootblacking class, and I attended two of Mark Yu‘s three workshops at the CSPC. There was also the monthly “Bondage is the Point” party at the Center after the last of Mark’s workshops.

It was a very full trip – even more so than usual.

But none of it really took away from my time with Max, which was nice. It is amazing to me to think of how far I’ve come in my relationship and service with him in the year-and-a-half since we first crossed paths. I love how much more intimate I become with his house and rhythm after each visit, how I’m more able to help out just because I know where things are and where they need to go. And of course, each trip brings me closer to Max with an intensity and urgency that makes me all the more eager for our next encounter and sustains me (somewhat) during our time apart.

I am meeting more people in Seattle, too, making new friends and strengthening existing acquaintanceships, which is always lovely – even if I sometimes tire out and have to retreat into solitude to recharge between social events.

By the time I found myself waiting in SeaTac airport to board my flight back to San Francisco, it was with the strange feeling of both leaving and returning home. I’m excited to be back in San Francisco now and returning to jobs and friends and to my own room; yet I am also planting roots in Seattle that are becoming more and more difficult to ignore.
